Can AWACS Be Jammed By ECM?


Recommended Posts

   Can an AWACS be jammed by an airborne  ECM jammer or is it’s own radar strong enough not to get spoofed? If it can be jammed, will we eventually see it in DCS?

I was wondering about this myself many times. Would be also great to know what is the radar resolution for the AWACS? At what distance can it see individual aircraft that are flying close together?

I came to ask a question about whether multiple AWACS units spread out could triangulate a jammed unit's position by seeing which azimuth both units detected the jammed threat. This is definitely the question that needs to be answered first! Thanks!

You can do that with a single aircraft.

Sure it can be, it's just that your jammer isn't going to since its purpose is to deal with threat radars.   SOJs are not in-game so AWACS do not get jammed - even then, SOJs would be more likely to be aimed at threats as well.
